Home tour- A celebration of color in a designer's home!

This gorgeous and colorful home belongs to Los Angeles interior designer and watercolorist Ruthie Sommers. Unafraid of breaking common design rules, her home acts as her playground where she confidently injects bold, bright and contrasting colors with flair. Let's check out her whimsical home below.
















What are your thoughts? Would you enjoy living in a home filled with such bold and bright colors? I know I would.

  2. I LOVE this home. I have saved both the bedroom pictures for inspiration for my own room. I never seem to have quite the confidence to put this much colour together but I love it here.

  3. Jesse.....I've stopped breathing. Seriously!? T-o-t-a-l L-o-v-e. Being quite so daring with colour and still pulling it off so tastefully takes plenty of skill. I may just have to reblog it's so incredible...

  8. I'm always a fan of bold and bright colors, this is definitely no exception! It's the interesting ceiling in her dining room that I can't decide if I like or not...it's *very* different, but still kinda cool...definitely not something I would do in my *own* home...(c;

  10. LOVE it! The kitchen and entryway are two of my faves. I don't know how people live in homes without color!

  11. Love all the color!! It is done in such a tasteful way...not too overboard and in your face color, just the right amount next to the calmness of white. Love it!

  14. I love how she's not afraid to do so much with each room. I couldn't have that much color in each room in my own house, but looking at her's is very inspiring. I'd want to wander around her house and just look at every single thing!
    btw your comment about the stripes yesterday on my blog made me laugh cause I was the same way as a teenager- I wore stripes all the time!! I still think they're very flattering. I definitely want more stripes in my house- I really want some curtains with the wide horizontal stripes like in some of the pictures. I think they're so pretty and dramatic. And I'd love to have a house where I could paint some on the floor!
    Have a great day Jessie!
